Travel Tuesday: Bougatsa at Bougatsadiko in Athens

Bougatsa1

Today’s Travel Tuesday post is all about Bougatsa. Bougatsa is a Greek breakfast pastry made with crispy phyllo dough. The dough encases a rich custard filling. Bougatsadiko in Athens specializes in this type of pastry. The dough is stretched out in the air, and it is quite impressing to watch. The whole process takes only a few minutes.

Here are the rounds of dough ready to be stretched

I have loved cooking and baking since I was 5 years old. It was the one activity that I would share with all my extended family. Like most people, I love traveling. I love visiting the markets, exploring unknown ingredients, and bringing them back home with me for inspiration. I find that recipes with simple and pure ingredients yield the best results.
